The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    red lentils

    I've recentley taken to nibbling on raw lentils, they have a great texture and taste great. I was just wondering if anyone knew whether they need cooking for health reasons, like kidney beans.

    For what health reasons do kidney beans need to be cooked? Not that I could imagine eating them not cooked...they're like little pebbles before they're cooked.
    The world acording to prune

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    My box of puy lentils says never to eat raw pulses. A quick google hasn't shed any light as to why this is the case.

    Lentils are still a great food choice, just cook them up first.

    Thats right.
    Also lentils/beans contain a sugar enzyme (i think) that is difficult for humans to digest. Hence undercooked = gas/bloating. Cooking breaks down the enzyme. But if you are nibbling on some, i dont think you would face any problem. Cooking them will enable you to consume a whole lot more than just nibbling some.
    Curried red lentils + rice + crispy chicken or fish = YUM!!

    They make a great soup.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    Go for it, if yu can stand it. I know some are eating raw oats. Read above, enzymes are harder to digest. Well anyway, i wish people will comment on how to cook their foods like chicken breast, tuna salad
